Hi,
I am calling a proc through JCL. In that proc there is a sort step which contains 10 datasets as input. My requirement is to override the last two datasets. That is no 9 & 10. How i can i code the override in JCL??

Hi,

To override only the last 2 files, you have got to code the original 8 datasets in your override then you have to give the 2 files you wanna override.

Correct me if im wrong.

yes what avalaches says is right. We have to give all the 10 datasets again in the JCL as

procstepname.ddname dd dsn=...........(input dataset)

You don't need to re-enter the first 8 DSNs, just put in a placeholder DD for them.
Remember that anything not overridden will be taken from the proc, which allows us to only change what we need to, like this:
Code:

//INPUTDSN   DD
//                  DD
//                  DD
//                  DD
//                  DD
//                  DD
//                  DD
//                  DD
//                  DD DSN=OVERRIDE.ONE
//                  DD DSN=OVERRIDE.TWO


Cheers,,,Steve
